First things first, we feel so lucky and so honored to have had Lisa as our wedding officiant. To say that Lisa is AMAZING would be a major understatement.
When we started planning our wedding we knew that the ceremony itself was supposed to be a big deal, but we didn’t know how to make that happen. We researched so many different officiants and most of them had a fill-in-the-blank kind of style where they had maybe three our four ‘standard’ ceremony scripts. You give them your money, they plug your names in to their template. Icky.
Then we found Lisa. Lisa really took the time to get to know us and make a genuine connection. We had two or three long phone calls with her (which felt juts like talking to an old friend) and we filled out her questionnaire with the a few basic details. What we got back from her in the first draft of the ceremony script was beyond expectation - it was so much more than we felt like we had put in to it. It was 100% us. My husband and I read through the draft, we cried together, and then we thanked the google gods for Lisa.
The day of our wedding, so many people stopped us to tell us how much they loved Lisa. People kept asking, “Is she a family member?” and “How long have you all known each other?” My favorite was, “You are so lucky to have a professional speaker in your family!” Truly, I can’t think of any higher praise than that. Our nearest and dearest all thought Lisa was either a family member or close friend based on how well the ceremony fit our personalities and our relationship. We are so grateful to her for all of the hard work and love that she put in to our wedding. She is a beautiful speaker and a beautiful person.

Lisa MADE our day.
Lisa made our ceremony so unique and meaningful. Everyone came up to us after the ceremony asking how long we had known her because she talked about us as if we had been long time friends. I can't recommend her enough for your big day. She took the time to ask questions about the big and little details about our relationships and made the most important moment of our day one of the most memorable for our guests. During the ceremony Lisa was so "present" and just an overall calming force. I can't imagine the day without her. We can't thank you enough, Lisa!

Amazing, without a doubt!
We loved our time with Lisa. The only downfall was that we didn't get to spend enough time with her! She curated the perfect ceremony for our special day. We live out of state, but Lisa spent time with us over the phone several times before we met and captured our personalities in the most perfect way. We can't recommend her enough. Miss you, Lisa!
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend! Thanks again, Denver Wedding Films, LLC
I worked with Lisa for a wedding at River Bends in Lyons. She is wonderful! She stands out above other officiants I have worked with in the depth of connection she had with the bride and groom and how much she clearly cared for the union she was orchestrating. Every word she spoke was sincere and meaningful. And from a dj's stand point she was super easy and fun to get along with and work with for the ceremony! I would highly recommend her. -Shaun Piazza Sound Slingers
